Nawaz reacts over ban on anti-judiciary speeches

Avenfield Case to Resume in Absence of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam

A three-judge bench of the Lahore High Court (HC) was hearing petitions against alleged contemptuous speeches by PML-N leaders since Sharif was ousted from office in a graft case July 28, 2017.

The bench on Monday had also directed PEMRA to decide within 15 days all complaints regarding broadcasting anti-judiciary speeches. The bench also issued a notice to PEMRA, instructing the regulatory body to present their point of view on the matter.

As many as three corruption references had been filed against the Sharif family, on the directives of the top court which pertain to the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metal Establishment, offshore companies including Flagship Investment Ltd, and Avenfield properties of London.

The Avenfield properties reference is among three filed against Nawaz and his family by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) past year on the directions of the Supreme Court.

However, the former prime minister's son-in-law, retired Captain Muhammad Safdar, was among the attendees in the court.

Imran Khan, the former cricketer and political foe of Mr Sharif, suggested...

Counsel for one of the petitioners, Azhar Siddiqui informed the court that Pemra did not take any action over petitions filed with it regarding alleged anti-judiciary speeches by PML-N leaders.

The petitioner said PEMRA did not block these hateful and ridiculing remarks passed against the judiciary. "A person dissatisfied at a verdict should file a review petition", he said.

"If they are not stopped they will continue attacking the judiciary, ? the petitioner said, requesting the court to initiate contempt of court proceedings against the respondents under the Contempt of Court Ordinance, 2003, read with Article 204 of the Constitution". How one can deprive them of their rights, Sharif said.
